  • Simultaneous separation-preconcentration and determination of trace
           amounts of mercury and cadmium in fruits, vegetables and biological
    • Abstract: Abstract A method for the simultaneous preconcentration and determination of Hg(II) and Cd(II) at the ng/mL level was studied. This method is based on solid phase extraction using 2-nitroso-1-naphthol-4-sulfonic acid modified natural clinoptilolite zeolite that is selective for mercury and cadmium. The adsorbed complexes could be eluted using dimethylformamid and the concentration of mercury and cadmium were determined by derivative spectrophotometry at appropriate (dA/dλ)s in order to work on the basis of H-point standard addition method. In optimum conditions, detection limit in the original solution is obtained 0.1 ng/mL for mercury and 0.8 ng/mL for cadmium. The preconcentration factor attainable for quantitative recovery (>95%) of Hg(II) and Cd(II) were 95 and 105 for a 1000 mL sample volume, respectively. Five times replicating determination a mixture of mercury and cadmium in 5.0 mL final solution gave a relative standard deviation of 7.8% for Hg(II) and 6.5% for Cd(II). The proposed method is applied to determine mercury and cadmium ions in plant and biological samples successfully.

  • X-ray fluorescence analytical signal of elements with small atomic numbers
           as a function of the energy of primary photons
    • Abstract: Abstract The dependence of the intensity of X-ray fluorescence on the energy of photons exciting X-ray radiation is considered. For elements with small atomic numbers, the direct ionization of atoms, the major process for the majority of elements of the Periodic Table, is the main only at low energies of primary photons. With the growth of photon energy, the intensity of fluorescence due to photo and Auger electrons arising in the irradiated material increases. This component at certain energy becomes predominant. The further increase in the energy of primary photons leads to the suppression of the ionization of atoms by recoil electron arising in the incoherent (Compton) scattering of primary radiation. The effects of the energy of primary photons on the intensity of X-ray fluorescence for the studied processes differ significantly. The depth of these effects determines their contributions to the formation of the analytical signal. Study of the influence of excitation conditions allows the analyst to intelligently solve problems of the optimization of the X-ray fluorescence determination of elements with small atomic numbers.

  • Application of magnetic treatment to changing the composition and
           physicochemical properties of crude oil and petroleum products
    • Abstract: Abstract The effect of magnetic field on the composition and physicochemical properties of oil and petroleum products is described. Experimental data are presented, illustrating that the structure of heavy oil residues (HORs) of different origin can be changed upon exposure to a magnetic field. The effect of exposure time and power of magnetic field on changes in the composition of HOR solutions in various solvents (toluene, n-hexane, dichloromethane, and isopentane) is studied. The use of magnetic field at the stage of sample preparation of solutions is proposed in the identification of heavy oil residues and the elucidation of their origin based on gas chromatography with a mass-selective detector (GC–MS).

  • Determination of residual amounts of Rosuvastatin Calcium on the surfaces
           of pharmaceutical equipment by HPLC and luminescence
    • Abstract: Abstract Highly sensitive procedures are proposed for the chromatographic (high-performance liquid chromatography, HPLC) and luminescence determination of trace amounts of Rosuvastatin Calcium in washings after the cleanup of pharmaceutical equipment. The developed procedures are validated for the following parameters: specificity, linearity, accuracy, detection limit, and quantification limit. The calibration curves are presented in the concentration range 0.01–1.0 µg/mL (HPLC) and 0.1–10.0 µg/mL (luminescence); the detection limits are 0.005 and 0.032 µg/mL, respectively. The efficiency of the sampling method is over 90%. It is found that the difference in the results of analysis of samples by two procedures is statistically insignificant. The luminescence procedure compared to HPLC has several advantages, i.e., lesser labor intensity, rapidity, and lesser reagent consumption; but the HPLC procedure is an order of magnitude more sensitive.

  • Quantitative estimation of brominated compounds for restriction of
           hazardous substances (RoHS) present in computer key board switches (CKBS)
           using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry
    • Abstract: Abstract A reliable, cost effective and user-friendly method has been used for the determination of polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDE) in computer key board switches (CKBS). The presence of the commercially added BDE-209 which is decabromo diphenyl ether (Deca-BDE) congener has been identified, established and estimated using gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. For extracting the analyte quantitatively from the material, Soxhlet extraction using toluene followed by multi-layer silica column chromatography was used to obtain the desired unambiguous quantitative results as per standard method. The results were confirmed by repeating, reproducing using standard addition recovery and by calculating measurement uncertainty. The CKBS samples contain around 49.6 ± 0.5 mg/kg of BDE-209. The recovery of spiked standard was between 90–93% and the linearity of the standard curve had a correlation coefficient of R 2 = 0.9974.

  • An arginine selective colorimetric assay using azobenzothiazole-polyene
           based dipolar molecular receptor
    • Abstract: Abstract A new simple colorimetric method for selective determination of arginine was developed using an azobenzothiazole-polyene dye. The benzothiazole moieties of the dye act as dipolar molecular receptors to arginine. Importantly, arginine could be recognized in solution with the naked eye due to the color change from orange to blue. Reproducibility of the assays was proven by calculating of the intraand inter-assay variations for the color responses and the variations were found to be 6.9 and 4.2%, respectively. Finally, the accurate measurements of arginine in real samples (commercial supplementary medicines) were achieved. In conclusion, validation of the developed method revealed excellent performance characteristics, including long life span, good arginine selectivity among a wide variety of other amino acids and long-term response stability.

  • Use of functionalized nanoporous silica for the microextraction by packed
           sorbent of ellagic acid from fruit juice
    • Abstract: Abstract A semi-automated microextraction by packed sorbent (MEPS) method was developed for the HPLC determination of ellagic acid (EA) in juice samples. The procedure includes enrichment of the analyte on a nanoporous silica sorbent by the MEPS method using a laboratory-made programmable apparatus. Three functionalized SBA-15 nanoporous sorbents were evaluated for this purpose and 3-[bis(2-hydroxyethyl)amino]propyl-triethoxysilane (HPTES)-SBA-15 showed superior efficiency. Only 2 mg of the adsorbent packed in a syringe’s hub was sufficient for a quantitative recovery of EA. Different factors influencing the performance of the MEPS method such as the nature of desorption solvent, elution volume, pH, number of extraction cycles (draw–eject) and sample volume were carefully studied and optimized. Under the optimized conditions, a detection limit of 0.8 mg/L and a linear calibration curve with an R 2 of 0.9995 were obtained for EA. The average recovery of the analyte for juice samples was 97.6% with a relative standard deviation of 4.4% for six replicates. The method was successfully applied to the HPLC determination of EA in pomegranate and grape juice samples.

  • Tandem high-resolution electrospray ionization mass spectrometry of
           fluorinated thevinols and 18,19-dihydrothevinols
    • Abstract: Abstract Fragmentation of fluorinated 18,19-dihydrothevinols and thevinols under electrospray ionization with collisionally activated dissociation accompanied by the elimination of an amine fragment from the cycle and the subsequent loss of H2O and CH3OH have been studied. For thevinol derivatives with a double bond at C18=C19, the [M + H]+ ions undergo the retro-Diels–Alder fragmentation, the abundance of which depends on substituents at the nitrogen and C20 atoms. The retro-Diels–Alder fragmentation of the [M + H]+ ions of thevinols bearing–CH3,–CH2CH=CH2, and \( - C{H_2} - \triangleleft \) groups at the nitrogen atom occurs due to the formation of a protonated diene molecule, whereas the elimination of a neutral diene in thevinols with hydrogen at the nitrogen atom has been observed.

  • Complexation of titanium(IV) malonates with phenylfluorone and
           2,7-dichlorochromotropic acid on a solid phase of PANV-AV-17
    • Abstract: Abstract Complexation of titanium(IV) with 2,7-dichlorochromotropic acid and phenylfluorone is studied by diffuse reflection spectroscopy after the adsorption of titanium complexes with organic acids on a polyacrylonitrile fiber filled with an AV-17 anion exchanger. The dependence of the analytical signal on the conditions of adsorption in the dynamic mode is studied, namely, on the nature and concentration of the organic acid, pH of the initial solution, concentration of titanium, and presence of foreign ions. Based on a comparison of the analytical characteristics of complexation reactions, the following system was selected for the determination of 0.01–0.05 µg/mL of titanium in drinking water: adsorption from a 2 × 10–3 M solution of malonic acid with pH 3.5–4, reaction with phenylfluorone in the solid phase, and spectroscopic signal recording at 600 nm or visual detection using a color scale. It was shown that phenylfluorone is superior to 2,7-dichlorochromotropic acid both in sensitivity and selectivity of titanium determination after adsorption on the solid phase of PANV-AV-17 as titanium malonate complexes.

  • A colorimetric sensor based on a polymethacrylate matrix with immobilized
           1-(2-pyridylazo)-2-naphthol for the determination of cobalt
    • Abstract: Abstract A colorimetric sensor is proposed for the determination of cobalt. It is prepared by immobilizing 1-(2-pyridylazo)-2-naphthol (PAN) in an optically transparent polymethacrylate matrix. The conditions for determining cobalt by the proposed colorimetric sensor are found in the study of the complexation of cobalt with a PAN-modified polymethacrylate matrix. The determination is based on the interaction of the sensor with a cobalt solution at pH 4 for 5 min, followed by the measurement of absorbance at 620 nm. The sensor ensures the determination of 0.05–0.50 mg/L of cobalt with the detection limit 0.03 mg/L. It is demonstrated that the sensor can be used for the determination of cobalt in the Cyanocobalamin medical preparation and potable water.
